They are 53 and 57, but they train the soul out in corona times for a comeback that may or may not be taken seriously. Anyway, Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield like it. So much so that Wladimir Klitschko trains the latter.
It’s buzzing with rumors, but what Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield are really up to, nobody knows for the time being. Tyson was the first to start the speculation with some impressive videos on Instagram. ‘I want to get in shape to fight three or four rounds for different charities. I’ll be back,’ it sounded.
A little later, Holyfield also put on his boxing gloves again. The 57-year-old ex-world heavyweight champion is also best known as the man who lost a piece of his ear after being bitten by Tyson. Holyfield and ‘Iron Mike’ battled twice in the 1990s, each time the victory went to Holyfield.
When asked if he would like to fight Tyson for the third time, Holyfield was more than manifest a few days ago. “Of course, I want to fight Mike. I am definitely open to it, and I know that I would do well for myself, especially at the age of 57. I can handle it, but Mike must, of course, want it himself.”
Whether it will happen is still the question. In recent days, Tyson announced that his ‘comeback’ will be against a surprising opponent.
In any case, Holyfield happily continues with the hype. The American took Wladimir Klitschko (44) as one of his successors as the world champion of the heavyweights.
The two have been featured in an Instagram video in recent days.
